I only met Miss Willie a few times overall but she was full of life and a character. I have been involved with Wanda, Ervin and Jeff mostly. Wanda has that same spunk for life her Mom had and I know she will be missed. Wanda - you are a lot like her from what I recall and her memory lives on in you. Sorry for your loss and we sent a mailing to the Waterloo Church in her honor. Thank you.

We grieve your loss. Aunt Willie was such a great woman of God. We hope that the Lord will comfort you as only He can in this time of grief. We sent an email to Wanda’s email address expressing more of our thoughts. Sunshine’s fingerprints are all over the lives of the Dolsons. May God give you a great time of remembering and celebrating her life.
